The fact that we operate in 83 countries gives us the opportunity to enjoy a great diversity among our employees, our team members. Local communities where we operate present a rich diversity and our team members represent that, respecting too a balance of genders.
The growth of individuals both in a professional and personal perspective it is for us a key asset in order to position ourselves as a worthy partner.
We encourage and facilitate the development of our employees by holding group training seminars periodically in which lecturers from outside the Company are as well invited.
The educational resources include not only product, industries and topics knowledge and skills but also refresher courses on SMCʼs philosophy and Code of Conduct, and courses designed to strengthen overall capabilities and motivation.
SMC encourages various optional employee activities, such as sports, cultural and artistic pursuits in order to promote our team member´s wellbeing and foster solidarity in the workplace.
Across Europe, SMC participates in marathons, half marathons, local business runs or fun dragon boat festival (Milton Keynes, UK).
In order to ensure SMC employees encounters a safe and healthy environment whenever they are at work, SMC counts with health and safety committees. These groups fully acknowledge related laws, regulations, and internal company rules and lead activities aimed at preventing workplace disasters and outbreaks of diseases.
At each business site, the health and safety committee discusses and implements health and safety measures based on collected mishap/accident reports, instruction on safety providing to employees, and inspections of the work site performed by an industrial doctor and the organization’s chief manager. Also, each committee cooperates with committees of other business sites to develop the system laterally.
